Locate32 3.1.11.7100 (32-bit)
A fast and simple Windows search tool

Locate32 is a portable, free and fast search tool for locating file and folder names. (It can also search their contents, but that's relatively basic by comparison.) Windows can do this already, of course, but Locate32 offers a number of advantages.

The program's indexing system is faster than the standard Windows tool, for instance. It requires less resources. And you can have it index your system on demand, or perhaps schedule it to run when you're not around.

Locate32 uses a simple XP-style dialog for searching. If you want to restrict your search by file size or date, for instance, you don't have to remember the relevant filter syntax; just click the relevant tab and you'll have the program set up in seconds.

The program is faster than the standard Windows search, too. And it's not reliant on the NTFS MFT, unlike many similar tools, which means you can use it to index drives with FAT-based as well as NTFS file systems.

If you like complete control over your searching, though, Locate32's best feature is perhaps its extreme configurability. Check the Settings dialog, for instance, and you'll find the program has more than 50 configurable keyboard shortcuts for doing various things. With just a little thought it's easy to make the system work just as you'd like.

Verdict:

It's little use when searching file contents, but if you mostly search for file or folder names then Locate32 offers a quick, configurable and convenient solution

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
